Today I visited Kingston (NY) City Hall. I had been told it was beautiful, plus I wanted to meet and photograph the Mayor, Steve Noble. I had fun meeting the staff and the Mayor, and I will post some other pictures another time. But for now, I wanted to share this. I asked if it was possible to access the roof, and was told I could actually go up in the tower, and someone would bring me. Not fully comprehending what that means, I accepted that offer.
After ascending some crazy staircases, I crawled out of a small door that felt like something out of a fairytale. And I found this. What a view! What awesome brick work. I had a big smile on my face, enjoying the access I've been getting lately and the things I'm learning. Not a bad Friday morning!
Before I left, Steve asked me what I thought of the view up there. I said it was great. I also mentioned that of all the times in my life that I've been past City Hall, it never crossed my mind that there was an area up there where humans could be. He told me that not many humans ever go up there, so it was a special experience, and he was glad that I got to have it.
Thanks goes out to Megan Weiss, Kristen Wilson, Steve Noble, Jim (whose last name I don't know) and others at City Hall for making this morning happen. I look forward to seeing them all again.
